NC – Sovcit – No you cannot coin your own money

Von NotHaus, who will be sentenced next month, had argued that federal laws prohibiting counterfeit currency were unconstitutional, and he said prosecutors didn’t present enough evidence to prove he intended to violate those laws.
“When the people own the money, they control the government,” von NotHaus said in 1999. “When the government owns the money, it controls the people.”
The judge dismissed his arguments that anti-counterfeit laws infringed the public’s right to privately barter, and von NotHaus’ claims it was not illegal to compete with the Federal Reserve.
